Voice your opinion, to bring back the edit button or not




Just thought I'd poll the natives. Sure we all should think a bit more before we post however sometimes changes need to be made for spelling grammer rephrasing etc etc etc.

Don't get me wrong outside of this recent knee jerk change, your efforts here are much appreciated Bas.

PS Flip the switch to post pictures.

Sure you have people like me (abnd others) who at times change the title of threads they have created. Sure you have people like me who at times change the content of their posts for whatever reasons, some of which may be:

Bad spelling and grammar.

Bad HTMLing.

The addition of additional information to their post.

Deletion of unanswered threads (I regularly delete threads after 24 hours if no one answers them, it just takes up space otherwise)



Sure, one can say"Just use the preview button" but really, that won't happen.
I forgot what I wanted to say but I was going to add it to my post above but I am unable to do so now, sorry.
No. It's about time it went. It's for kids.

People should proof-read and (if they need to) spell check before pressing submit.

Usenet thrived for years without a delete or edit function. And to exacerbate the situation, posts are archived for evermore in their entirety on google. People should just think before they post and consider whether they'd be happy with their post being read in five years time. It was always a great way of exposing hypcrisy and inconsistency.

A typo or spelling error alone is hardly the end of the world. Unless it's a spelling mistake in a spelling flame. That's embarrassing.
If people can't be fucked to press 'preview' they deserve to run the risk of coming over like a peasant.
I'd like it back. I know it's my own stupidity, but many times I have posted something asinine in frustration about something I watched on the news or about something another member posted, only to realize a few minutes later that I had made an oaf of myself.

Fortunately I have been able to retract most of those before anyone else noticed.

I suppose I can adapt, but I do this under protest!

Oh crap I need to retract... too late.

=(
At risk of sounding patronising, why not delay posting your knee-jerks for five minutes after writing them, re-reading them, then make a decision as to whether you would wish those thoughts to be public?

Because that would be the smart thing to do. I'm not smart, I'm impulsive.

If I have to adapt I will, but I don't have to like it.
I'm too fucked up most of the time while posting....I need the "Delete" button the next morning...let's face it, ya gotta be fucked up to post in this hell hole...
Because....I would have never posted that I wanted New York New York to be my sexual partner in "man sex" if I had thought about it for 5 minutes....
I was impressed early on with the concept that if you erase and retype and
if you retype again .....don't press the enter button.

Usenet thrived for years without a delete or edit function.

Have you seen the quality of most of the posting on usenet?
no edit button. no pictures. no fucking stupid faces.

i'd like a big cast iron forum that runs on steam.

also do not let members put up polls. once you start letting the likes of us vote, we get the idea that we have some say in the running of the site. which we all know is just not true.

do what you like bas, it's not as if any of us are going to fuck off is it?
If people can't be fucked to press 'preview' they deserve to run the risk of coming over like a peasant.

We don't always have time for that.

Its another feature I/others enjoy on other sites and I am disappointed that we can't get out of the 80's on this site.

Amsterdam is a cool theme for a website/forum with other forums(politics/bar) that are worth spending time in, but other sites with features from the late 90's like images/edit features/smilies make it tough to decide to spend time here goofing off.

Its a lot more fun with features in my opinion, but then again I'm not in my 50's or 60's.
so you dont have the time to use the preview feature, but you do have the time to come to this site for a bit of goofing off?

fuck the future. let's run channels on a hollow log in the back yard.

boom boom boom bang bang banga banga bang boom boom. thuddy.tic tic tic tap tap bang.
That's correct.

You never "post on the fly?"


I usually scan a post before posting but sometimes sentence and paragraph structure needs finer tuning and this isn't seen until re-reading the thread later.
hypocrisy?

Who needs a spell checker?
What a bunch of Luddites! This is the 21st century, and these days forum software has features like smillies, edit & delete buttons etc., so why not make use of them? You don't even have to use them if you don't want to.
The issue is that some people use them to the detriment of others.
Do you mean by deleting their posts and fucking up the thread? Well, I can see that as a problem. I wonder if the software can support time limited editing.
Why take it away before having the poll about it?
Please bring back the edit and the x button. I need them.

hypocrisy?

Who needs a spell checker?

Not me, my scared-to-post-under-their-registered name chum.

I never spell check. There's two reasons for that:

1. I find that having to consider the accuracy of spelling myself makes me a better speller.

2. My self-esteem is sufficiently high to withstand the occasional typo being noted by a stalker. In other words, I don't give a fuck.

I hope this assists.
My self esteem is high enough that I don't give a fok about misssppelling either.

LOL....
Man, Ole Hippie Dave is really gunna have a problem wit his speling now!

BTW..
How is it that Max is starting this poll and not Bas.
Can anybody start a poll? Or is it just moderators.

Ps//Max you spell Grammar like that. I wouldn't have noticed except my spell checker showed it in red. LOL!

I believe you're right TAK : only Bas and mods can start a poll.

(And two Poles of course)

:-)
Thanks Bas.
You can leave the hell hole anytime, dude. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. The vast majority of your posts are useless anyway. No big loss.

Please enlighten the forum to what exactly you, guest, consider a useful post.

Stay on topic. Not use the Channels as a fucking chat box. Not gang up on people and encourage stupid behavior.
What's wrong with using the forum as a chat box? We're doing that now!

Hummm, ever notice you never see badx and patrick in the same room at a party...
What, exactly, was the catalyst for eliminating the edit button in the first place??

Truthfully...
